PROS: Fantastic flexability. You can have the camera control everything, focus, aperture or do it all yourself. Wonderful pictures.
CONS: LCD is hard to use in high light conditions.
PROS: -Leica lens-awesome! -12X optical zoom -F2.8 aperture thru entire zoom -excellent image stabilization -excellent picture quality and true colour -very easy settings to figure out This is my 1st digital camera and I haven't been sorry for 1 minute. I am selling my 35mm SLR!
CONS: -the converter ring makes the camera a lot bulkier and is necessary, even just to use a skylight filter.
PROS: This is my first venture with a digital camera, and I was not dissapointed. I wanted something that I could grow with, starting basically with a "point & shoot" mode, but gradually learning and using more of the manual features (shutter priority, manual focus, etc.). This is a perfect camera for that. Plus, the 12x optical zoom is AMAZING. Great scenic shots as well as action shots at baseball games. The picture quality is impressive, as well. Plus, the functions were easy to find and utilize.
CONS: Nothing major that comes to mind. A few random shots of friends have turned out blurry, but I know that is not due to the camera, but due to my lack of experience with the correct function/mode. However, later I took some "glamour shots" for a friend, and they turned out terrific.
PROS: Exelent shutter responce. Great for taking pictures of my kids. I love the 12x lense! This Panasonic FZ20 is the best digital camera I have owned. The flash is extremely powerful. The burst shot is a great and fast feature. I didn't have to read the manual to understand the buttons or menue.
CONS: Hard to get. I only found 2 online store who offered it.
PROS: Clear and colorful pictures, easy to use and can have total manual mode if desired. I've had this camera about two weeks and it has put the fun back into taking pictures.
CONS: None at this point in time.
PROS: For the amature "Point & Shoot"! For the wanna shoot like a pro (ME) all kinds options to play with! And for the Pro's who know's what the limit is?
CONS: The SD card needs to be at least 256MB...but get a 512! And a backup Battery will come in handy when you have a wife that wants to review every shot! Other then that it's the best on the market!
PROS: This is one of the NOT well know but best cameras around. I have used all Dig Cameras, Panasonic with LEica lens is the best !!! What's wrong with CNET reviewers, they don't seem to like Panasonic as much ? We compared print by print between panasonic & canon, Canon produces great colors but lacks sharpness compared to Panasonic !!!!!!!!!
CONS: Flip LCD screen, lens cap strap
PROS: great zoom solid feel stabilization rocks! no current competitor model
CONS: no real camera bag/ cover fits it !
PROS: Just an awesome camera. Pictures are high quality and sharp with vibrant colors and great image reproduction. Zoom is incredible and with the Optical Image Stabilization you get perfectly focused shots just about every time. I'm getting shots I could never get with my old digital camera. The menus and input buttons are clear, concise, and easy to use. I only had a couple of hours to learn the camera before I left for vacation, but was able to master all controls very quickly. Flash is very powerful and pictures turn out well when used. 2" LCD is very high quality and works in almost any light.
CONS: 16mb card that is included with camera is just a joke. When I purchased camera I bought a 512mb card and CC was throwing in a 128mb card for cameras over 5.0 megapixels. Between the 2 cards I am able to take approx 250 pics. Flash does not open when the camera detects that it needs flash. You have to manually open flash and then the camera takes over the with automatic control. The 2" LCD screen is not very well protected as it is flush with the back of the camera and seems like it needs to be protected better. With these comments I am just nit-picking, I still believe whole-heartedly that this is the best non-SLR digital camera on the market today.
PROS: Takes great photos, has wonderful image stabilization and is a nice step up from the FZ10 it replaces. Designers/engineers were listening this time around and it shows it.
CONS: Pitiful SD card included (only 16mb), and aftermarket lens adapters better than included one.
